Using Microfiber for Asthma Prevention
OHB has a new video - Healthy Schools, One Cloth at a Time - that shows how cleaning with microfiber cloths in the classroom can decrease chemical exposure that can affect the health of school staff and students. Teachers share how microfiber has been an easy, safe, and effective cleaning alternative to chemicals.
Some cleaning products, including disinfectant wipes, can worsen or even cause asthma. The video summarizes California laws and regulations about the use of sanitizers and disinfectants in the classroom.
